Embroidered Poppies

Another block on the Darlene Zimmerman panel is embroidered. These poppies look so pretty, bright and springy. 



It took me longer to embroider this block because I spent a lot of my evening hand sewing time at the sewing machine piecing scrappy quilts.

Here's a picture of the four completed blocks, there are four more blocks to be embroidered. 



Prepping is still continuing on the EPP project. Hopefully I'll have something to show you next Sunday.

  14. Hi Gretchen! Poppies always make me smile. I used to pass a house on the way to work. Each spring they had a huge patch of poppies that would bloom - they are such a happy orange. The patch grew larger each year, and I always looked forward to seeing it for a few weeks. ~smile~ Roseanne

  16. Ohhh Gretchen those embroidered blocks are beautiful, they remind me of sitting in the winter by the fire in NZ with my mum as a tiny girl and watching her do blocks just like these, the start of my love of coloured threads? ????? Cheers Glenda

  17. Gretchen, as a lover of embroidery, I adore these blocks. Coincidentally, I just changed my header to my embroidered poppies from a Crabapple Hill pattern. I will look for Darlene Zimmerman; thanks!
